Calculate the monthly finance charge for the following credit card transaction. Assume that it takes 10 days for a payment to be received and recorded and that the month is 30 days long. (Round your answer to the nearest cent.) \$500 balance, 20% rate, \$50 payment, previous balance method
HELP!!

• ALGEBRA -

What are they asking you to calculate?

All you have said is the amount of the payment, the balance and interest rate, and that they use the previous balance method.

• ALGEBRA -

Well that is the question.I really do not know.

• ALGEBRA -

ok I came up with I=Prt =500(.20)(1/12)=\$8.30 is this correct.

• ALGEBRA -

If what they want is the finance charge in the next billing cycle, that will be \$450 * (0.20)/12 = \$7.50

For the billing cycle of the current bill, the finance charge depends upon the previous unpaid balance. If that previous balance was \$500, then your calculation is correct.
